At the end of the 18th century, Artemisia Lufkin became the first female Minister of Magic. She was a political genius, a top-notch Auror and a devoted disciple of the Enlightenment. But behind closed doors, she was also a hedonist, an adulteress and guilty of high treason.

Summary edited by TheEmpress--Sequel to Consumed.

The sanatorium was many things. A hospital. A tomb for the dead and dying. Many came chasing a cure, some sought a place to die. But not her. She was different. In a place where the captain of all the men of death reigned supreme, she sought resurrection.

Stunning banner by Azure @ TDA
She came and would not depart. Out of doors, amidst the palatial sweep of his estate’s park, Tom found her hiding. She breathed into his ear, spoke of betrayal and then was gone. He saw her smiles on the spider-webs. In the ripples of the fountain. In the mischievous cracks that marked the door of her sepulcher.
"Never," she whispered, "Nevermore."

Jimmy folded the delicate napkin and stuck it in the pocket of his wrinkled trousers. “I promise I won’t,” he said as she put the car into reverse and pulled out of her parking space. 
Three days later, Jimmy called at ten thirty and Molly, for all her rigidity, answered the phone anyway. Molly II/OC--Banner by 100ways @TDA

For most of his life, Peter had never known what it was like to go hungry. It wasn't until November 1st, 1981, when the bodies of Lily and James Potter were taken from their home in Godric’s Hollow, the last of the autumn leaves mimicking the tones of vermillion and orange and crimson for all the blood that wasn’t spilled and the fire that never came.

And then he began to starve.

Morality, Quirrell decided, was blurred. There were no clear sides, no well-defined factions upon which he might govern his existence. Life was a circle. The beginning and the end were the same.

And he, he had always been Janus.

Pain seized him, throwing him against the driver’s seat with all the force of the Cruciatus Curse. Mocking shards of memory danced through his dazed mind.The sirens. The cop. The slick road. His car was nestled against a guardrail, the remnants of his shattered headlights dusting the blacktop like frost. And outside, the sky wept soot.

Freddy sat on the fence bordering the cow pasture, watching the setting sun dye the heather red. She’d never realized before just how eerie the lowlands could look at dusk, with the empty valleys and great looming hills topped with old standing stones or some crumbling feudal fortress. It made her feel downright haunted.
